INSCOM Remote Viewing Documents and Why They’re Important

In 2004, author Jon Ronson published a book entitled, The Men Who Stare at Goats, which was later made into a BBC documentary series as well as a feature film directed by the Cohen Brothers. It attempts to serve as an expose into the seemingly zany world of the Army’s “psychic warrior” program, portraying its origins as somewhat comically misguided while simultaneously examining its more insidious implementations. Ronson’s book, being a Simon and Schuster (read: CBS) publication, is a relatively establishment work at best, painting the history of this joint CIA/Army/DoD operation as a mere snafu brought about by isolated instances of insanity; indeed, the title of the documentary series upon which the book is based, Crazy Rulers of the World, makes no attempt to mask Ronson’s opinion of the affair.

It should come as no surprise, then, that there’s much more to this sordid tale than the mass-produced CBS/BBC account would have the public believe.

The MKULTRA Connection

Earlier this year, author, deep political researcher, ethnomycologyst, and alternative media producer Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media published an exclusive interview with none other than General Albert Stubblebine, former head of the INSCOM remote viewing program and a key figure in Ronson’s book. This candid interview was nothing short of revelatory, as Stubblebine’s mature reflection on his involvement with INSCOM reaches far different conclusions than Ronson’s:


The following revelations come about halfway through the interview:

Jan Irvin: “I had discovered that it looked very obvious that Aldous Huxley was one of the key people, if not THE head of MKULTRA, directing the studies, etc., to be doneā€¦ You agree with that statement as the former head of Army intel?”

Gen. Stubblebine: “Yes.”

Irvin: “And can you give any information on what Aldous Huxley’s position was?”

Stubblebine: “I don’t think I should.”

Irvin: “You can confirm that he was, though? And that he was the head of the operation?”

Stubblebine: “I’m pretty sure, yes.”

If true, General Stubblebine’s statements have profound implications. It would mean that the remote viewing program was not simply a rag-tag band of supposedly psychic eccentrics, but quite possibly could have been the subjects of MKULTRA experimentation. It would mean that the promotion of the New Age movement and psychedelic spiritualism (aspects of which were funded and propagated by the CIA for eugenic aims) in Army lore is not coincidence. It would mean that mind control, of both the soft and hard variety, play a role in the “psychic spying” program, perhaps being THE primary objective of the program. It would mean that there’s a lot more going on here than meets the eye.

Stubblebine himself goes on to say that the MKULTRA-INSCOM connection as he sees it is an educated guess, stating that he’s unsure of what exactly was going on “above him.” It is my intention, then, as a researcher, to document and contextualize this connection.

“Let’s put it in very simple terms: It is very clear that when you submit the mind to multiple “energies,” you can move a person from a belief system to potentially a new belief system. I know this can be done.”

An INSCOM Beyond Excellence: The Army High Performance Task Force Report

The above is the title of a document I recently obtained via FOIA request to the Army, asking for any openly acknowledged connection between The Monroe Institute and Army intelligence. The document in question can be downloaded at the bottom of this page, and to my knowledge, has never before been made available to the public. What is The Monroe Institute, one might ask? It’s a New Age-laden research institute that paints itself as an “anti-psychedelic” East Coast version of the Esalen Institute; aside from Jim Channon’s “New Earth Army Battalion Manual,” it is solely responsible for launching INSCOM’s investigation into parapsychology. I also believe it to be a CIA subcontractor, a connection that, if proved, would bolster General Stubblebine’s claims of MKULTRA involvement within INSCOM.

I’ll be outlining The Monroe Institute’s numerous and verifiable CIA connections in later works, but it’s interesting to note that Jon Ronson, despite having interviewed Skip Atwater, Joe McMonagle, Albert Stubblebine, and Ed Dames in his book, fails to mention The Monroe Institute. This INSCOM remote viewing cadre’s early days are, after all, virtually indivorcible from the Monroe Institute, as roughly outlined in books like Remote Viewers by Jim Schnabel. Given that Dames and Stubblebine were trainees at the Institute, Skip Atwater later went on to become its president, and McMonagle went on to marry its founder’s stepdaughter, you’d think it noteworthy. The Monroe Institute seems very proud of their INSCOM association, at the very least. This cannot be said, however, of their earlier CIA connections or those of its founder, Bob Monroe… but that’s a story for another day.

I’d like to end this post by stating that this is a complex topic, and deliberately so; obfuscation of both fact and fiction is a hallmark of Anglo-American Establishment intelligence agencies. I am by no means implying that beliefs held by any of the above groups or individuals of said groups (Esalen, Monroe, the New Age movement, psychedelia, etc.) are universally bad or untrue. Obviously not. I’m simply suggesting that there is a noteworthy pattern of far darker intentions associated with many of these ideologies that adherents to them may not be privy to.

New podcast and more on this topic coming soon. Stay tuned.
